to get something done. you're absolutely right, tamron. they know they can't have the same sort of disastrous debacle happen that we saw during the debt ceiling fight of 2011. i think that they know they have to work together. president obama feeling emboldened about winning re-election. he's demanding that the bush era tax cuts expire for the wealthiest americans. that's something that republicans have typically opposed, but today house speaker john boehner seemed to suggest he was open to wiggle room on the issue of taxes or fresh revenues. on the other hand, democrats are willing to compromise on sacred cows, entitlement reform. let's hear more of what the congressional leaders had to say after the meeting. take a listen. >> we should have a goal in terms of how much deficit reduction. we should have a deadline before christmas. we should share some milestones of success so that confidence can build. >> we have the cornerstones of being able to work something out. we're both going to give up some of the things that we know are a problem. >> we're prepared to put revenue on th
, alex, as mike just said, what president obama said sound a little bit like a green light for israel to do whatever it takes necessary. what's happening right now is with the army here is doing all it takes to prepare for a ground invasion of gaza. but no order has been given. i'm pretty sure they don't want to give the order. the whole point of these strikes has been to stop the palestinian rocket fire into israel. it hasn't really worked. that's why a ground invasion is still an option. today just about an hour ago a rocket was fired here from gaza to tel aviv where i'm standing. there is a warning hamas still does have this capability. it's been a bitter day and ferocious day of fighting especially earlier on. there were 200 rocket -- air force attacks by israel on gaza just in the early hours of the morning. 200. and they targeted targets they have not aimed at before. this time they went into civilian buildings belonging to the hamas government, symbols of power if you like in gaza. they knocked out the prime minister's office there. his office was totally flattened. that was a
to think it meant when a presidential candidate won 332 electoral college votes and he thought this right up until the day before the election. >> all of my thinking says romney big. not even close. 300 plus electoral votes for romney. >> even though president obama very clearly ran on raising income tax rates for top earners, paul ryan claims he is not so sure that's what america actually voted for. >> his argument is people voted for him because they believe tax rates should be raised. do you disagree? >> i don't know if i agree with that. we have divided government, they also voted for a clear majority. >> never mind that more votes were cast for democrats in the house of representatives than republicans. in the house, republicans maintained their majority, strictly through gerrymandering their districts, and never mind that election exit polls show that 13% of voters said they should increase all tax rates on everyone, and another 47% said increase tax rates for incomes over 250,000, so that adds up to 60% of americans in favor of at least the obama tax rate increases and some of them
spokesman and asked how president obama is being kept informed about the crisis. >> no crisis in the world would allow rocket fire indiscriminately into their country. we support israel's right to defend itself and, you know, have been in constant contact with them. that said we think everyone will benefit. >> what does constant contact meet? phone conversations with the prime minister? >> the president has been talking to president benjamin netanyahu daily, talked to president morrissey of egypt, to the prime minister and talking to people that have a relationship with hamas to tell them that de-escalation is in everyone's interests. this will only lead to civilian casualties. i don't mean to draw false equivalents. this started because hamas is raining rockets down into civilian populations and they have to stop. >> sounds like the president believes hamas has to basically ceasefire first. >> hamas started the conflict and they need to stop raining rocket fire down into israeli population centers. now you asked about how the president is being kept abreast. the president's national secur
first comments about the fiscal crisis since obama's re-election. reuters reports the secretary says, it's not possible to cut deficit without modest tax increases of some kind. there's a big story coming up right now for us. mack mccarty was chief of steph to president clinton. a piece published yesterday in "the washington post," he suggested enlisting bill clinton and mitt romney who just lost the election to work together to get a tax deal done. dennis van roukel is president of the national education association and he was in today's meeting with the president. thank you very much depp nis, and thank you very much, mack, for joining us. let me ask you about this deal, first. i want to ask you the best part. let me go to dennis. what was in that meeting today? did you get a sense there was give on the left and the right? >> i think this meeting was a very important meeting. it was one of three. he first met with labor leaders and progressives. tomorrow with the business community and friday with members of congress. i think it's a good start. we have to find what we're all most inter
democrat in the senate. why weren't you in his offices getting arrested? >> i think that first obama term was like a dress rehearsal for progressives. we got some stuff right but at the end of the day it was like we got him elected and we thought he would govern and we'd work in unison and this time around we've got to inject way more more post oosh election accountability. so yeah senator durbin is a great ally of ours but he's been part of this gang of six or gang of eight depending on the story, and you know, really trending in the wrong direction. >> a bipartisan group of senators in the house who had been working to the to try to hammer out some kind of deal they could take to the full senate. >> they seem to be backing away from the senate. they've got a shot at doing that. i think we need to in this second chance, we're past the dress rehearsal, is actually get out on the streets, put tension, two of the big things that president obama did that he didn't plan on doing, would block the keystone pipeline, added tension in the relationship and the dream act work. and those were both t
that were -- the folks in washington knew what the right way was to try to whip national elections, they couldn't quite do it because they were -- basically, they succumbed to their base the democratic party started with bill clint and obama successfully able to carry this over, never able to allow the base of the democratic party, special interest groups, to overtake the national message, the republican party -- >> the serious governing philosophy thatter is thfd country well but too many swing voters in the country, you hear the word conservative now, they think of looms and wackos. we gave pup five u.s. senate seats the last two election cycles by people who were just out there, completely extreme, manifestly up prepared for the offices that they are running for. our elected leaders scared to death of the conservative entertainment complex, the shrill and divisive voices that are bombastic and broadcasting out into the homes and this country is rejecting the social extremism of the republican party on issue after issue. if you look at the four states that legalized gay marriage,
money. >> right. you know, andrea, i hate to sound an optimistic note when it comes to politics, but i do think the signals coming out of john boehner's sort of world, and out of president obama's statement last week is that there can be some common ground here, that president obama, i think, clearly has some leverage due to what happened in the, in his own race, as well as at the senate level. so i think he has that. and then john boehner, i think a little bit more questionable in how much more leverage he has within his own caucus, but we shall see. if both of them can sort of say, look, let's do this, this is important to the country, let's move on, we can disagree about lots of other things, but we're going to compromise and move forward. whether that compromise is not raising the rates, but finding a way to get people, the top 1% of earners to pay more without raising their rates and having that conversation early next year, we're not sure what it is. but i think at this stage, it's important to kind of read the tone and how they look and sound and i think that suggests compromise
borders. so we are fully supportive of israel's right to defend itself from missiles landing on people's homes. >> firm word from president obama. but president obama knows that any mandate he can claim after reelection is one focusing on domestic concerns. does he have the political capital to more deeply engage the united states in a seemingly never-ending conflict, possibly with no foreseeable end. at the table, rule a gentleman bril, chris hayes, my friend and host of "up with chris hayes" here on msnbc and jane eisner, the editor in chief of the jewish daily forward and mark quarterman, research director at the enough project. thank you all for being here. so this is -- as i was saying earlier this morning, this is going to be a pretty sober conversation. i want to be clear that sometimes the topics we take on, on mhp are my wheelhouse and the things that i sort of have my fundamental point to make. today i feel more like the audience in that i feel overwhelmed by this -- these developments. i feel distressed by them. i feel, chris, like we don't have necessarily even the common v
' swing. i heard that. >>> right now on "amount reports" trading fire. israel's air strikes counter hamas rockets. >> i very much hope over the coming days we can achieve this issue on a basis that is sustainable. >> president obama, who strongly endorses israel's campaign, today arrived in cambodia, the first american president to visit that country. hours earlier, he became the first u.s. president to visit myanmar, known as
conversations. total game changer if hillary clinton sort of sticks to it and says i'm not running, right? >> i'm sorry, chris. say that again. >> a total game changer if hillary clinton decides definitely not to run. >> yeah, i think, as i said i think democrats are excited about what president obama has done through this election cycle and excited about the possibilities of solving problems. i don't think they're focused on the campaign in 2016. >> oh, come on, these conversations are not being had? >> all those people you mention, vice president biden was my seat made in the senate, a fabulous leader, wonderful, works wonderfully with the senate. does a tremendous job as vice president. we have a lot of great candidates on the democratic side that are possible, but i don't think they'll want to start talking about it. i think they'll want to start working hard on the problems we see that we can solve and chip says, the people will see what this next four years produces and i think democrats want to make sure that they're working in a bipartisan way to find the solutions and make these next f
. >> that's what clean living will do. >> there you go. you had a great interview, it's up right now with david axelrod, kind of a postmortem after the election. what jumped out at you talking to him? >> i went to obama headquarters in chicago on friday, the last day that it was in operation, all the joyful young people were -- it was like the last day of school. >> you really are 102. using the term "joyful young people." go ahead. >> they were trading gmails, hugging each other as they headed out. and david axelrod sat down, put up his feet on his desk and talked a little bit about the campaign. and i asked him about the biggest mistakes the romney campaign made. and he told us that he had expected that back january, february, march before the obama campaign really had its footing, that the republican outside groups, the super pacs, would really hammer president obama on deficit deficits, kind of put him in a hole on that, and set the narrative of what axelrod said he was afraid of, a gold watch strategy, setting the idea that president obama was an historic figure. he was a good g
